    If you like bullet hell games and are ready for your next challenge, I wholeheartedly recommend Hell is Other Demons. You will have no regrets. Now go forth, young Demon Rebel. Get gud.

    Hell is Other Demons captures a certain vibe incredibly well. Its inspirations, from Devil Daggers to Super Crate Box, are clearly visible but everything clicks together into a wholly original creation.

    What Cuddle Monster Games has achieved is a glowing reminder of the merits of repetition. By basing its game around a patch of simple-yet-perfected mechanics and the human need to try again, the studio has created a lovely little throwback. Above all, Hell is Other Demons is a testament. A testament to how far polished mechanics can take a game, a testament to the depths of the bullet hell genre, and a testament to the virtues of dusting yourself off and giving it another go.

    Hell Is Other Demons goes the distance in its refined and frantic gameplay that captures the nostalgia of 8-bit arcade shooters.

    The game is very good in my opinion though if we could aim with our mouse it would be much better. Overall a very fun game.

    Doom, but if it was a platformer. This is how I can describe the whole game. I'm not a lover of platformer games, but this game gave me onlyDoom, but if it was a platformer. This is how I can describe the whole game. I'm not a lover of platformer games, but this game gave me only positive emotions (except the final boss who is INSANELY annoying). For example, I can admit some things what was perfect in the game:

    - Music, this techno and metal mix is a masterpiece. Especially according to what happening on a screen.
    - Pixel art style, could look too simple. But this simpleness is genius. It is a difficult game that makes us replay again and again a single location, but your eyes never get tired of it.

    The only minus here is bugs. You can easily get stuck under textures. Sometimes after a completed mission, it freezes and you can't quit the menu. After few times, it starts getting annoying.
    I'm satisfied with every single minute I have spent here and definitely recommend you to check this game out.

    The game was really good and quite challenging at times, and the art style is beautiful. This game would be a 10/10 if the story was longerThe game was really good and quite challenging at times, and the art style is beautiful. This game would be a 10/10 if the story was longer and had more content. The story is finished in about 2 hours, and it was a blast to play. Will definitely be coming back for more if more campaign is added. Expand

    It's a good indie game, it has acceptable controls and the levels are very entertaining. the best thing is the aesthetics and the difficulty.

    'Idk what I'm actually watching at' - that what said my friend when i show gameplay of this game and probably he right. art style of this game'Idk what I'm actually watching at' - that what said my friend when i show gameplay of this game and probably he right. art style of this game on my mind is perfect but i clearly understand that this style not for all. i mean it cool looks but in some situation the brighter dot on the screen is probably your character and this the only way to play this game (in some rare cases or on first few levels while you get used to this art style ofc). in all other aspects of game, it pretty good i mean many different enemy's, guns, skills and updates of your character make it truly good game. Bosses can give you some challenge so you will spend some time on it while picking right tactic and equip to beat them. endless level can help you if you stuck so you can earn some currency to unlock some stuff that make you stronger. summarize all can say that only 2 minuses: first it's absence of plot and second as i said before its art style not for all, but it bullet hell genre game so it's no big minuses, i think.
